Joda Clément‘s I hope you like the universe has now sold out. Normally, this would transfer to a $4 download, but because of our current sale, which continues until we release the first 2017 tapes, it is free/pay-what-you-want.
Bryon Hayes of Decoder said this:
“With ‘I hope you like the universe’, the composer combines synths, field recordings and a harmonium’s drone into a pair of vibrating sound fields, the energies of which continuously evolve and grow. Elements both recognizable and uncanny come into focus and dissolve in a shifting pattern of interleaved ideas, mostly calling to mind the interstitial atmospheres of human ports of call: images of lonely boatyards, deserted railway stations and highway bypasses immediately spring forth in the mind’s eye.”
What we said, upon release in April of 2015, this:
“These pieces vividly suggest both exterior and interior environments and the boundaries between them, like peering through layers of windowpanes from inside a still room. Here, Clément’s work is both industrial and intriguingly human, hinting at people and actions that might create certain daytime and nighttime sound environments while resisting identification.”
